This is not intended to improve the quickness of a program per-se (I'm 
not saying it is impossible to happen, just that it would be a side 
effect), but it is intended to improve scalabilty.
I expect a very good boost up on scalabilty for us by these jeff's 
efforts, but quantify now is not very simple. Time will say better than me.
